'The book clearly fills a void in the field of social impact assessment and should be well received by researchers involved in the field. One particularly strong point of the book is the presentation and review of studies that have not been published previously in readily accessible forms (e.g. agency reports, project reports, etc.). There is a wealth of information in such sources, and Finsterbusch has done us a service by making some of this material available here.' -- Organization Studies, Vol 3 No 4 1982

'The book's main contribution is the enormous amount and variety of data included in each of the chapters.' -- Journal of Applied Behavioral Science, Vol 18 No 2 1982

'In this volume, Finsterbusch seeks to capture the emergent organization of the field...The magnitude of this task is staggering, but there is no question about the need for exactly this type of synthesis. Finsterbusch should be commended for having undertaken the task...has clearly emerged as a leading figure in the field of social impact analysis. In this volume he has provided us with a clearly written and well organized sourcebook. This book will be of value to professionals, students, and users of social impact statements.' -- Social Forces, Vol 61 No 2 December 1982
